Charlotte Hardy is a painter and illustrator working at Clockwork Studios in South London. You can contact Charlotte directly to buy and commission work.
Charlotte works in mixed media using acrylic paints inks oils pastels and collage on handmade or watercolour paper.
Since graduating with a first class honours degree in printed Textile Design, Charlotte has worked primarily as a painter and regularly taken on illustration commissions for greeting cards, book covers, editorials and murals. Her paintings exhibit nationally and her work sells internationally as prints and stationary.
Charlotte is drawn to decoration and pattern often in domestic interiors and collections of ornamental objects. Her training in textiles is evident in her use of flat motifs and her sense of design.
More recently Charlotte is finding inspiration from her love of nature and plants and is working more from life. She is exploring mark-making and more playful compositions. Traditions, customs and folklore are informing a new narrative.
